    Didn’t some idiot do that just recently in reality?

    Every professor I know has at least one story of a student unknowingly plagiarizing their instructor. It’s both funny and sad.

    One of these two kids is being genre savvy. IT’S NOT THE BIG ONE.

    See even Alix knows that’s a bad idea.

    Holly may be the older sister but Alix definitely is the smarter of the two.

    I’ll say it now. Holly don’t do it. But I know it will make no difference. She will do it and get caught and make a fool of herself.

    My daughter, who graduated from high school in 2010 did some term papers where she was required to have two book sources. She didn’t procrastinate like holly is doing, so she had plenty of time to get to the library. She and her older sister would start work right away on their papers. I was more of a procrastinator, but not as bad as Holly.

    As a retired teacher, I know exactly where this is headed. Holly, at least do a bit of a re-write!

    I had a student at university who copied a summary of a book right from the internet, put her name on it and then still wouldn’t admit it. She copied the whole summary, just copy and paste. Sad

    Back when I was teaching, I got so I could often identify which of my students had written something, even when the text was typewritten (we didn’t have computers back then).

    Once a C student’s paragraph began, “Presently I chanced upon the carnage.” It continued in a similar vein. The student claimed that he had composed the paragraph himself. Then he said his father may have helped him a little. I hied myself to the school library and finally found the offending paragraph. I don’t believe that student tried plagiarizing in my class again.

    To plagiarize effectively enough to be sure of not being easily caught actually takes more work than just writing the paper.
